Crying Baby, Puking Cat

in Fact of the Day,The Boys in the Wood

Four days into the school year and I would’ve taken a sick day if it weren’t for the simple fact that I just mentioned… it’s only four days into the school year.

The Monkey has been doing this nightwaking/night terrors thing a couple of time a week that we can’t seem to get a handle on. So for the last two nights I’ve been up around 1:00 or 2:00 a.m. trying to calm him down and get him back to sleep. I was talking about this with a friend over the weekend and she commented on how, when you have a newborn, you learn to function on very little sleep for a long period of time. Then once you’re back in the everyone-sleeps-through-the-night groove, having that pattern interrupted feels like absolute torture and ruins your entire day.

To add to the joy of it all, last night after the house had just finally gotten back to sleep, the Jungle Cat decided it was time to yark up a big pool of something. Of course I had to get up again to clean it up. He’s had a few of these vomiting episodes recently, so it seems like a trip to the vet is in order. This is not your regular old cat puke, this is projectile vomiting of large proportions. Yuck.

So that was my night. Not as theatrically spectacular as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but with much less sword-play.
